It’s been a really exciting week. I turned six years old this week. Although it’s been six amazing years with my Mommy and Daddy they’ve also been six very tough years for all three of us. We’ve spent the last few days celebrating hard.

The week started with Monday being a Public Holiday, and although it was a really cold morning we opted to walk around Zoo Lake. Granny joined us as did Mischka. It was really fun and we fed the ducks. Since Mommy walks there often she showed us where all the ducklings were and how many there were in each family. One pair of ducks had nine little ducklings.

Some tea and coffee followed at Happy.Me in Greenside and then on the way home we ran some errands. Dad did a little DIY in the afternoon and I ‘helped’.

I woke up with a temperature on Tuesday so Mom opted to keep me at home. She set up a bed for me in the study so that I could be close to her while she did some admin.

Wednesday I was back at school and in the afternoon I went to see Braam for some play therapy. When I arrived home a gift had arrived for me from Australia. I was thrilled to see it but sad I had to wait another day to open it. The tension was too much for me!

Thursday was the big day! Mom and Dad were up early and all three of us went downstairs where the kitchen island was covered in gifts for me! I was thrilled. There was a chocolate cake with candles which I blew out. I then got to opening my gifts and felt really spoilt at all the things I got.

Mom had made goodie bags and balloons for my friends at school, complete with cupcake decorating kits. I could see no school work would be done today! My school friends and I had an awesome morning together. Dad managed to come home a little earlier and we all chilled around the house. I chatted to Uncle Wayne and Aunty Birgitt on the phone and told them all about my day, thanked them for the spending money they’d sent and I asked them to come visit. I even gave them directions on the phone how to get to my home!

I decided I wanted McDonalds for dinner, so while Dad and I were in the car, Matt, Jenny and Micheal phoned and sang happy birthday to me. I was so thrilled.

Friday was pretty quiet and I spent the afternoon playing with all my new toys.

On Saturday we went to Aneesa’s The Big Bang Theory birthday party. Although it was her birthday a while back, she only managed to have her party now. I went as Sheldon, Dad as Leonard and Mom as Amy. We all looked really funny. It was also the Winter Solstice, so days will start getting longer and hopefully warmer!

Sunday was Mark and Lisle’s farewell – they’re off to Australia. They had their farewell at The Barnyard where the show Thank You For The Music was on. Although it was really loud for me I still enjoyed it and bopped along to the songs. It was an amazing afternoon and when we finally got home it was just in time for my bedtime!

Before I go, a BIG thank you to everyone that sent my messages, either direct or via Facebook and Twitter via Mom and Dad. I really really appreciate it!

Til next week!

Love Jarrod
